Vital Conversation – Engaging Youth

February 18, 2020

The Winkler Community Foundation is hosting a 2020 Vital Conversation: Youth Engagement.  This event is part of our RBC Future Launch grant commitment (grant presented in December 2019 to Genesis House) and is the next step in our Vital Signs program.

We will be hosting Youth between the ages of 16-29 to participate in this conversation; high school students, university students as well as young people currently employed in the workforce together with Community Leaders.

We believe that local issues can be addressed by working together. By bringing community leaders together to listen to our youth between the ages of 16-29, we are convening changemakers to participate in social innovation conversations. Invision Edge will be facilitating the event.

To join us  on Thursday, February 20th,  please contact Myra Peters, Executive Director @ Winkler Community Foundation 204-362-9292.

Pay It Forward May

  Pay it Forward is something we can and should be doing all year round. The Winkler Community Foundation and Morden Area Foundation has chosen one month to be more active in our efforts – not because we have to, but because we want to. Not because we’ve experienced kindness from others, but because we want to work together to make our community strong and vibrant. Pay it Forward. Inspire others. Impact our Community.
